Get Free or Low-Cost Internet
Internet access is essential for all Baltimore City residents. Find out how your household can get affordable internet access for work, school, and more.
The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) benefit program that helps U.S. households access or keep their internet.
Eligible households in Baltimore can get:
- Up to a $30 per month discount on broadband service.
- A one-time discount of up to $100 on a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers. The household must contribute between $10 and $50 toward the price of the device.
You can check your household's eligibility by using EducationSuperHighway's GetACP pre-enrollment tool. Answer a few questions and get a personalized checklist to help you enroll. It takes about five minutes.
Additionally, eligible households can also take advantage of the Maryland Emergency Broadband Benefit Program to receive a $15/month subsidy toward home internet service. The subsidy is in addition to the $30/month ACP benefit, resulting in eligible households receiving a total benefit of up to $45/month. Households must be enrolled in ACP to receive this benefit and speak directly with their internet service provider to participate.
